Outside of KFAN Sports Radio Hawkey is married with two kids. He also sings in two bands, Rocket Club and The Chris Hawkey Band. Hawkey likes riding motorcycles and going to movies.

'MEATSAUCE' PAUL LAMBERT - “Meatsauce”... a man who went from bringing food to the guys at KFAN, to being one of the best radio personalities on The Power Trip morning show! He is very involved in local Minneapolis / St. Paul Metro area charities He’s active with Special Olympics, and the Highland Friendship Club as well as being “Man of the Year” for his fundraising efforts with the Leukemia & Lymphoma society.

PAUL ALLEN - P.A. first hit the KFAN Radio Airwaves in the summer of 1995 as host of At The Races – A weekly horse racing show, specifically at Canterbury Park where P.A. has held the title of Track Announcer since ‘95. From temporary lay-off to permanent payoff, P.A. initially was fill-in host for Jesse Ventura while he ran for Governor. Reality set in when Jesse was elected and P.A. was given the midday show on a permanent basis. Paul has been the voice of the Minnesota Vikings since 2002 and is often mentioned as one of the best play-by-play announcers in the NFL. He also hosts Vikings Game Plan on KARE 11.

ERIC NORDQUIST - Eric Nordquist is a recent addition to the KFAN stable as the producer of the Paul Allen Project from 9-Noon.  Eric is a Mankato, MN native.  In 2012, he jumped into radio after seven years of marketing and sales management work in another industry.


Eric is recently married and lives in the Downtown Minneapolis area with his wife.  Other than his widespread passion for Minnesota sports, he fills his spare time with golf, live music, stand-up comedy shows, playing the bass guitar (poorly) and responsibly enjoying a good beer or blended scotch.


DAN COLE 'THE COMMON MAN' - Bitten by a radio active program director in 1994, Cole became the “Common Man,” able to leap tall radio towers in a single bound. The seven or eight time City Pages award winner employs a radio style all his own, because, quite frankly, no one else would want it. The self-proclaimed radio dinosaur will make you laugh and cry as he spins yarns from his early childhood, his
Haight-Ashbury days, to his current status as husband, father and teen heartthrob. Sports, sports, sports with an esoteric approach. You gotta hear it to believe it. The Official Unofficial Ambassador of Golf in Minnesota (self-given title) is also the host of Tee-To-Green in the summer.

BRANDON 'TENNA-B' MILESKI -Brandon, (Tenna-B as he’s known at The Fan,) has been on the Common Man Program for 8 years. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to hockey, whether it is pro, college or high school, he knows it all! He is the head coach at Coon Rapids High School for the boys hockey team. He also hosts, “Beyond the Pond” during the hockey season.


DAN BARRERIO - Oh yes, Dan Barreiro will talk sports weekdays 3-6:30. He, along with fast-rising radio sidekick Justin Gaard, will definitely address the top 5 sports talkers of the day, each evening at 5. And in what might be the understatement of the decade, he’ll even offer an unvarnished opinion or two. But, what he might not do is pound the same 2 sports points over and over and over till his head explodes, and the listeners’ eyes glaze over. Instead, he might just talk immigration, or Lady Gaga, or Frank Sinatra, or kids playing 65 hours of organized sports a week. Every once in a while, he might even articulate your rage especially while your stuck in traffic or yelling at the weather terrorist on your flat screen TV.

MARK ROSEN - Twin Cities own famed TV and Radio Sportscaster Mark Rosen has been climbing his way to the top ever since the 1970s and is now known as the number one sportscaster in Minnesota. In the late 90’s Mark joined the KFAN team dropping by every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on the Power Trip Morning show at 8:00 am. Rosen gives his two cents on the sports scene and whatever’s happening in the world of The Power Trip. Rosen also stops in to see Common at 2:00 pm Mondays thru Thursdays and gives a nice mix of sports and non sports.

JUSTIN GAARD - Justin Gaard is the co-host of “Gopher Sports Weekly” and is also the sideline reporter for Gopher Football. A former Iowa Hawkeye tennis player, Justin is one of the sharpest college sports minds on the FAN staff and is host of Gopher Football Fanline. With a background in coaching high school basketball and tennis, “Gaardsy,” offers multiple perspectives on the sports news of the day. His dream job came true when a successful internship with the FAN turned into a producer position with the top rated Paul Allen show. Now Justin brings humor and sometimes even insight to “Bumper to Bumper” with Dan Barreiro during the afternoon drive.
